WHO Poll
Q: 2023/24 Hopes & aspirations for this season
a. As Champions of Europe there's no reason we shouldn't be pushing for a top 7 spot & a run in the Cups
b. Last season was a trophy winning one and there's only one way to go after that, I expect a dull mid table bore fest of a season
c. Buy some f***ing players or we're in a battle to stay up & that's as good as it gets
d. Moyes out
e. New season you say, woohoo time to get the new kit and wear it it to the pub for all the big games, the wags down there call me Mr West Ham

Saturday football
Ten points separate the two top teams, with only Liverpool also in distant contention for the title. The side in fourth spot could end the weekend just three points behind Chelsea, which will make things interesting. The visitors have won just twice (Leeds, Villa) since we demolished them, and have dropped points to Everton Wolves, Brighton and Liverpool. Meanwhile, City have really put their foot down in recent weeks and are purring towards yet another championship with all the comfort of a Rolls Royce. Little to suggest that momentum changing today, but this should still be a good watch. Home win.

Postponed – Covid, injuries and departed players.

The first of two massive six-pointers for the Hornets this weekend+. The Barcodes haven’t really got going yet under Eddie Howe, although their recruitment shows expected levels of urgency and intent. This could be a painful, if intriguing, watch. Home win.

Underperforming Everton have a gilt-edged chance to climb a little further away from the bottom three as they visit the one team with virtually no chance of staying up. Anything but a convincing win for the visitors will get the hyenas baying more than a bit louder. (What do Scouse hyenas sound like?) Away win.

Wolves have started to step on it in recent games, but then so have the Saints. The hosts are notoriously miserly in giving away goals while retaining a constant threat at the other end. Southampton will have to be at the top of their game if they’re to get anything from this always tricky fixture. Draw.

The Stevie G love-in is getting a little monotonous, the more so as Villa’s progress since he was appointed has hardly been spectacular. From our perspective, today would be a good time for them to start winning. A solitary goal was the only difference between these sides in the FA Cup: nothing that a dash of determination can’t overcome. Draw.


These two sides served up a cracking 3-3 draw in the reverse fixture a few weeks ago. The Bees will be grateful for their surprising early season form, which has banked them 23 points with 18 games to go – enough for another season in the Premier League? But that form has taken a predictable dip of late and with Man U, Man C and Arsenal among their opponents in the coming weeks, they’re likely to find themselves in the mire before long. Liverpool, meanwhile, will look to this to return to second spot. Home win.

Leeds were far from convincing in the FA Cup game and will want to put in an improved performance this afternoon. An improved performance from us would not go amiss either, despite positive recent results, as we prepare for high-profile visits to Old Trafford and Aggborough. Cresswell’s welcome return strengthens defence and gives Bielsa another reason to squat on the touchline. The club has been a tad shy about who’s injured and who’s got Covid, but it’s encouraging to see a jolly Kurt Zouma back in training, though he may not be ready for today’s game. Leeds have had a tough run of late – their last five results are a mirror image of ours – winning once (Burnley) amid four defeats. Form suggests a routine home win, but nothing is ever a given, not in this game it isn’t. Bamford could be back for them and, with Raphinha, offers a potent and constant goal threat. Home win.

Two sides on the up and, with luck, there’ll be nowt to separate them this afternoon. A fixture that’s served up its share of red cards in recent years and another one or more today is not beyond the bounds of probability. Draw.


A nervy six-pointer beckons, assuming availability of a full complement of players. Draw.

A trip to the seaside isn’t as easy as it used to be. Away win.


With Leicester’s game at Turf Moor curtailed by Covid and insufficient players, you’d expect Leicester to be chomping at the bit to get playing again. Home win.

The Bees would do us a favour by avoiding defeat. Can’t see it, though. Away win.

Re: Saturday football
Will be surprised if its not 3 from the bottom 4 that drop, and with plenty of games left still I can see Newcastle getting out of it.

Re: Saturday football
Norwich lifting themselves out of the bottom 3 for about the first time since the start of the season! A good win at Watford, not sure it will help stop them from the drop as those around them have games in hand but turning into a bit of a scrap at the bottom between 4 clubs, another few bad results from Everton and they could join the party no one wants to be involved in? Could they be this seasons surprise and go down..........

If Norwich manages to somehow survive. Some bookies are going to take a hit.

Re: Saturday football
15 mins of injury time after Mike Dean stood around for a dozen minutes in perfectly playable conditions.

Watford 3-0 down with 10 men
Ranieri 1 point from 24 since beating Man U, may go tonight & definitely if they dont beat Burnley up next

Absolute scenes in the Spurs end!

Sven Roeder 10:05 Thu Jan 20
Re: Saturday football
Have always said timekeeping should be controlled off field and agree injury time should be on a clock like in basketball.
If its 3 mins it should be 3 mins of actual playing time shown on a countdown clock in the stadium that stops when the ball is out etc
English referees have also gone to this CONTINENTAL MALARKEY of time being up but letting the 'phase of play' continue to its end.

Manuel 5:38 Thu Jan 20
Re: Saturday football
Tottenham bring a forward off the bench to totally change the game, we don't even have a forward on the bench. Harvey Barnes is a good player but he should have squared to Lookman when it was still 2-1.

Alfs 2:50 Thu Jan 20
Re: Saturday football
Didn't watch the game but from the comments, WTF is going on? I've been saying this for years, referees should be made to explain their decisions in public. The Prime Minister has to, why are they protected.

I don't buy the top 6 conspiracy, but betting on the games? Wherever there is money to be made, there is corruption.

Sir Alf 12:43 Thu Jan 20
Re: Saturday football
Why would the ref not blow for full time when Spuds equalised some 30 seconds over the allotted 5 mins?

Waited 2 more mins? Why?

Something don’t smell right ? Very rare these days for a ref to not call full time within a minute of the allotted added time?

Unconscious bias for one of the “entitled 6” clubs who have managers that will be vocal about refs decisions. Or something more sinister?

Iron Duke 12:33 Thu Jan 20
Re: Saturday football
Injury time should be on a countdown and stopped when the ball is out of play. That would stop referees doing what they feel like and favouring teams.

Sir Alf 12:29 Thu Jan 20
Re: Saturday football
The goals were scored on 95 mins and about 30 seconds and the winner on 97 mins and 30 seconds ? There was 5 mins added time in the board? Was there a lengthy delay for subs or an injury?

threesixty 12:09 Thu Jan 20
Re: Saturday football
The only good thing about that game is that spurs were crap for 95 minutes really.
Leicester played them off the park.
So you can’t get keep getting lucky like that in this league. On their form the games in hand don’t actually look like bankers for them. (Fingers crossed!)

Athletico Easthamico 12:04 Thu Jan 20
Re: Saturday football
We're the 4th top scorers in the league.

Sort the defence and keeper out.
